Methinks I am suffering from writers block. I sit down to update you fine people, the ones who haven't abandoned me because they think I fell off the face of the earth, and I just can't find anything in my day worth mustering up the energy to write about. The kids are still nuts and into things and hilarious and sweet and temperamental and growing and learning and smearing food, dirt, and other assorted 'stuff' around (thankfully, not lipstick!). But I can't seem to keep track of it all. And the camera, well, it has some pictures on it, but I have no idea what they are because I haven't dumped it in ages. Which might be a good idea. Then it would give you something to look at. And me. Because my blog loads faster than my picture server, so I often come here to look at pictures of my kids. As if seeing them live and in color isn't enough. They are quieter on the blog, though.

I would like to blame it all on the pregnancy-mush-for-brains that I am dealing with. However LL over at VitaFam is blowing that theory out of the water. She still manages almost daily posts. Stinker.

I could blame it on the fact that I am into some full throttle nesting around here. I found a closet. No, I mean, I found a closet. Really. It was just this door that we opened occasionally and tossed stuff into then slammed the door shut before everything came tumbling out. Or worse, something came walking out. I braved it yesterday. I wish I'd had the presence of mind to do before and after pictures. Because it is really quite an accomplishment. But the camera...I don't really know where it is.

On Tuesday, I made up a dozen jars of apple butter. That was fun. And tasty, if I do say so myself. Then promptly fed my family soup from a can because I was tired of the kitchen for the day. Oh, and had made the monumental mistake of letting apples boil over onto a gas stove. Apple sugar/syrup/mess is not easy to get off of a gas stove. Just in case you ever wondered. But my MIL stepped in with the magic powders and helped (read-did most of it!) get the gunk up.

And Monday, well, I can't remember that far back. So now that I have rambled on for several paragraphs about nothingness, I will make the resolution to find the camera today and post pictures of whatever I can find. Ta-ta for now!

Doesn't necessarily mean I'm posting anything of SUBSTANCE.
